Choose My New Handle

ok.. so ive been thinking about this for ages now..

ive had this handle or nick obviously since i first joined TFP.

when i first stumbled upon TFP, i dont recall what i was searching for, but no it wasnt porn.

anyways, i joined TFP 'fordehelluvit'. i didnt really take my membership seriously and i conjured a handle that i thought id never see again after that day. i never did intend on coming back here after that first day. but something drew me back here time and time again.. and so my nickname stuck with me.. and ive now been here for about 3 years it think..and im really sick and tired of being called by my handle dlishsguy. the worst is..when someone asks me about the forum and my handle on it i queeze for a minute and laugh..

so after 3 years of being dlishsguy, i think im ready to make a metamorphisis into something else...something more serious than just a silly throwaway handle that kinda got stuck to me like chewing gum on the bottom of my shoe. and 3 years later its getting annoying.

so im giving TFP members the chance to help choose my new handle and of course with the permission of the moderators, get it changed.

so id like to put it out there..

what suggestions does TFP have for me?

This is a huge responsibility. Not only that, but we all know you as dlishsguy. Sure, it's kinda gay when I say it with a mustache while not wearing a shirt and articulating the "s" sound, but it's your name and you've made a name for it... so to speak.

I don't want a new, but more accurate name of: "snorted wine and peed my panties"... so to speak.

At least you aren't stuck with a completely retarded name like mine! You know you were not serious when you signed up when you have a handle like mine.

And I have always read your name as dishguy, only now did I realize that was not it. So I vote for Dishguy.... just tell people you like dishes, haha!

true..its a huge responsibility.. and i know i made a name for it.. but try telling your mates that your handles delcious guy without getting a roar of laughter from them all.

i guess id want something similar..but not something worse than what i already have..

another reason for me asking for tfp's input would be because at least tfp members would still be aware of who i was..

didnt realise that sports widow had changed her handle until i saw her pic posted in the 'me right effing now' thread...

and like i said i probably want something similar to what i have and not overly different.. i do remember WK going through a few handle changes but hes always remained the 'King' in his name..so everyone know who he is..

s8trboi69 would not be something id be intereste in will..
1) i dont skate
2) im a man (i think)
3) 69..well im here in dubai without my mrs, so i dont want to go down that road


blahblah54 - i feel for you..but at least u didnt try! i actually had to think of something to come up with a name like that

I always read it as "dishguy" too. I thought it referred to his love of satellite tv. I vote for that one. I also liked the name blablabla.

At least you aren't stuck with something like burper0831. When I first got internet access, I couldn't pick a yahoo name that wasn't already taken. I was burping a newborn baby at the time, who had been born on August 31. Burper0831 worked, but I've let it follow me everywhere (except here).

Dishguy is good. If you don't like it, try something you really like, a word you like, or something you would like to convey.

My original handle had been taken on another site years ago and I just decided to use the nickname that people called me, which had been taken so I just chose one of the number combos that was offered and have pretty much used it most places since.

Seriously, I say you pick something that matters to where you are now spiritually and mentally. You're the one going through the metamorphasis. What describes the new you? Butterfly? Moth? Mothra? Sort of silly, except for maybe the last one, but I do think you need to figure out what best represents the new you. Or at least clue us in to what that is.

Dish would work too. I think something along those lines is still best. People will remember you because it is similar, and its really not that bad of a name.

then again "SNOW AXE" would be totally bad ass

I have admired you from afar, and I hope you don't change too much when your "handle" does.

P.S. I'm pretty sure your handle has little to do with your name, anyway.

I like this, you could change your name to an aboriginal symbol such as "fire or smoke or water or blood"......keep everybody guessing.

funny, i've read it as dlish-guy the entire time and it didn't sound silly. Until you pointed out it was dlishs. . IKIKAZZ has been a popular moniker on another forum I frequent... though I'm sure I should be frequenting it less these days purely on principle.
